Air travel and other daily activities cause harmful greenhouse gas emissions. Relying on the simplicity of IMPACT, investors can now use the Carbon Offsets tool to select typical greenhouse gas emissions or introduce a specific amount of carbon to be offset. Interactive Brokers seamlessly makes carbon credits available to the appropriate agencies, enabling investors to reduce all or part of their carbon footprint.
“Sustainable development and environmental awareness are not isolated issues, but relate to collective culture. A culture that recognizes the interconnected nature of our global community. As such, we continue to develop products that serve this collective culture, ”said Will Peterffy, ESG Director of Interactive Brokers. “Carbon shifts make it easier for our clients to participate in the emerging collective culture dedicated to protecting our planet when they invest in companies that align with their values through the IMPACT app.”
Interactive Brokers has partnered with Sustain.Life to provide emissions data for each carbon activity in the app. The SaaS Sustain.Life platform helps companies across all industries reduce their environmental footprint by providing ESG tools to measure and manage their carbon footprint. The Carbon Offset Tool is available in the IMPACT app for IB IE, IB UK, IB HK and IB SG customers.
